Attach the cardstock to the card using the adhesive.
Fold up the base of the card about 2 inches and crease well.
Cut a small triangular wedge
at the center of the base. Cut it up to the crease that
forms the base. This
allows the card to close slightly and stand up on its own.
Before attaching the swans, close the card and decorate the outside.
Before taping the swans to the card, check their positions on the card.
Attach the swans with a piece of cellophane tape where indicated by my
finger in the photo at right.
When placed as shown, the tape acts like a hinge, allowing the swans to
drop down into position on the base.
Carefully collapse the card and deliver to the lucky recipient of your
origami pop-up card.
You may need extra postage!
